    Welcome to the forums!
    TWRP doesn't store anything for you. It is a recovery. I can create a backup, but that is stored in your internal memory. Did you make a backup of the stock ROM before you flashed? Were your contacts saved to Google?

    Did you sync your contacts with Google?

    Easy answer here is the backups that custom recoveries make like TWRP or CWM, etc. are done in a coded/compressed format. Its not something that can be easily pieced apart for a specific restore of a certain piece of information.

    That is were Titanium Backup or other app/data backup apps specialize and come into great play.

    Is the old ROM from a backup? If not, you are going to be in the same boat.

    Did you save your backups to internal or external card? Your nandroid will be in the folder called TWRP. An app like Nandroid Manager might be able to pull the contacts out if you cross your fingers really hard.
    If you can't find your TB backups, go under TB preferences and choose Backup Folder Location and tap on detect. If it finds it pick Choose. If it doesn't find anything there's a good chance you lost them due to how you wiped your device.
    A lot of people have there contacts saved to Google and don't even know it, some carriers set it all up when you buy the phone. Try removing your Google account, clear cache and data from Google play, reboot, readd the account.
    For the future set up your backups to save to extsdcard to minimize disasters.
    Unless you set twrp backup to extsdcard direct it to sdcard/emulated/0 and look for the folder TWRP. Restore your nandroid and start over.
